With this incomparable palette, Stephen Lacey paints a vivid picture of a wide range of individual Trust gardens. He gives his own impressions
  • Describing the present state of each, and placing it firmly within the context of gardening history in Britain. All the major periods are represented: a knot garden from a 1640 design at Moseley Old Hall in Staffordshire; great estate gardens such as Blickling, Cliveden, Killerton and Powis; magnificent eighteenth-century landscapes such as "Capability" Brown's Petworth in Sussex as well as Stourhead, Stowe and Studley Royal; Victorian gardens like Biddulph Grange in
  • Staffordshire with a wealth of new plants introduced from all over the globe; and the outstanding gardens of this century, such as Nymans in Sussex, Sissinghurst Castle in Kent, and Hidcote in Gloucestershire. This superbly designed volume serves as a practical guide to National Trust gardens as well as a source of reference and inspiration. Every entry gives details of soil and climate, while an appendix includes tables listing the special features of each garden. Last
  • But by no means least, the beauty of the gardens is conveyed in superb full-color images taken by leading photographers
